If your '83 Ford T-bird has a carburetor the fuel filter is screwed onto the front of it. While the engine is off and cold, all you need is a small wrench to unscrew the fuel line then unscrew the fuel filter from the carburetor. Wrap some thread-lock tape on the threads of the new filter and replace. Make sure it's tight but not so tight that it strips the threads on either the fuel line or the filter. That's it.
